and health care reform was done. when we look at deficit reduction, it's four or five deals, each one in endless, horrible slog through the d.c. marshes. in the second term the two things we are going to see, it does not look like we are going to see much more on jobs. the white house is not fighting hard. they have not made infrastructure a condition of moving forward. we got $600 billion in the fiscal cliff. republicans are going to make a decision to include revenues or whether or not they are going to make a decision that is better to do no more reduction over the second term. if it is what it takes to keep the president from getting more tax revenues. >> let me ask this. what i hear you saying is deficit reduction. it seems as though we have a president who is legitimately a deficit hawk. he believes the deficit is a problem and deficit reduction is a priority. when you look at the approval rate of americans on handling of the economy, it's split half and half with support for the president and 49% versus 48% disapproving. there's a little room to do a big thing. this president i
. >> thank you for your time. >> what will the president tell the country on monday about debt and deficit spending and how we get that under control, ben? >> well, i think that the president will follow precedent when it comes to the inaugural address and lay out a broader vision for are where we take the country in the next four years and to talk about how some of our founding principles and values can drive us through the challenges we continue to face. i think the state of the union address will be more of the agenda, more discussion of how we get it done with congress and enlisting the is support of the american public. >> so nothing on monday about spending then? >> well, i can't specifically say that the remarks aren't totally finalized yet. i think what you will see is the broader vision. the specific agenda will come in the days ahead. there was a statement out of the white house on friday addressing the proposal that the republicans have put on the table right now. it looks like they may be breaking the ice a little bit and not holding the nation's full faith and credit hostage f
and deficits. less than two hours, the house will vote on a sandy relief bill that could deliver $51 billion in aid. but earlier today house republicans tried and failed to pass an amendment to the sandy relief bill that would give the money only if it were offset with spending cuts. they were saying no relief aid unless programs are cut back. 157 republicans voted for these offsets. they supported the amendment which would have killed the $50 million sandy relief package. how on earth did we get here? this is money sitting in washington to help our fellow americans get their lives back together. how can we explain the efforts to not help people? joining me now, congressman mick melvani. congressman, first of all, thanks for being here again. >> it's always a pleasure. thanks very much for having me. >> now, how can you talk about spending when americans are so desperate for help, congressman? >> well, it's pretty simple. because in your introduction you said the money was just sitting here in washington. and it's not. it's actually sitting in china. and we're going to have to go and borrow
start for a second term. >> what about the critics of the president to say that the deficit has grown and he has not put his weight behind climate change. in his first address, he mentioned climate change three times. and there are still problems in the country and the criticism -- is that he has given a fabulous speech but has not followed through. >> i think some of the criticism is fair but you have to also talk about his initial priorities or challenges. he is really committed to doing something about this in the second term. the deficit is one of the most difficult issues and the president -- he does not sign the appropriation bills until they are passed by congress. and this is not something that the president can do alone. it is the congress decides how big the deficit will be but the president has to work with congress. we need more revenue and we need to drive down spending. i think the president understands that and he is working on this but he cannot do this alone. >> looking forward to the next four years, do you see an america that is retreating? >> i see an american -- a
is going through, and where he is taking the country. by playing on the republican field of deficits and debts instead of joblessness or say we're all trying to compromise, you make people feel everyone is equally involved in a gridlock that has led to a point where congress has a lower popularity rating than the banks. that is a feat. 9%. it is dropping even though there are good people inside the congress. there is a progressive congress. they put out a people's budget. bernie sanders has exposed the fed giving out trillions of dollars in addition to the tarp bailout. >> barney frank has taken a hike. >> that is worth talking about. you see in this congress michele bachmann and michele bachmann one of these -- wannabe's. there are fights about redistricting. >> use of the one strength the president obama, his rhetorical skill, is not sufficient. >> it has not been used at the scale necessary in this time of crisis. america is in a crossroads. this is a moment comparable to coming out of the great depression. this was a moment coming out of the financial crisis when tectonic shifts
choices to reduce the cost of healthcare and the size of our deficit. we reject that america must choose between caring for the generation who built this country andng in the generation who will build its future. >> president obama's speech was very short on specifics. again, speaking about america's problems in general terms. >> now, more than ever, we must do these things together. as one nation and one people. >> tonight, the factor will analyze inauguration day with brit hume, bob woodward. john meacham, bernie goldberg, juan williams and mary katharine ham. caution, you where to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. hi i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. inauguration address number 57. that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. first inaugural address given on april 30th, 1879 by george washington. not to the folks. washington spoke directly to congress. he appealed to the new leaders to be moral and just and he invoked god and heaven saying, quote: smiles of heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of
could be here. he is a deficit hawk. more important than that he is a thoughtful and conscious -- voice of a conscious for the senate throughout his term on fiscal responsibility. we worked together in a very effective way to try to bring some sort of bipartisan effort into the requirement that we do something about the debt. it was really, as was mentioned, an idea that we came up with on a long plane ride i think to central america to put together a commission that then threw into the simpson bowls proposal that has become the defining memo for the effort to try to get that is under control. bob zoellick is fond of quoting a friend of his, the foreign minister of australia. we met a few months ago who said to him the united states is one debt deal away from leading the world out of fiscal chaos and disruption. we are. we truly are. we are a nation on the brink of massive economic expansion. from the place that can't is from, north dakota, you see the change in the paradigm on energy. we will go from importing country to an exporting country. our cost of energy for as far as i can see
s. >> while i'm willing to find middle ground to reduce our deficits, america cannot afford another debate. not paying its bills is irresponsible. it's absurd. republicans in congress have two choices here. they can act responsibly and pay america's bills or they can act irresponsibly and put america through another economic crisis. but they will not collect or ransom in exchange for not crashing the america economy. the financial well-being of the american people is not leverage to be used. the full faith and credit of the united states of america is not a bargaining chip. >> you know, it looks like republicans are up against another wall. but they're not going to be able to get -- they're not going to be able to get, quite frankly, some things they really want, if they're serious, are important. spending issues. but this is -- he's got them again. >> here's the problem with the republican party being owned by extremists on issues not related to the debt. let me tell you something, the president of the united states, it's laughable that he would talk about republicans not being res
agenda, talking about jobs, dealing with the deficit, getting out of afghanistan. imgrapgs. not small goals. what are his chances of getting thinged accomplished? >> i think there's a path on immigration and that would probably be done soonler rather than later. i remember rahm emanuel saying never let a crisis go to waist waste. the republicans have a crisis in terms of attracting hispanic voters. so they need to deal with immigration reform. is prospects for that look very good. you look at the previous president, what tripped them up, you didn't mention lyndon johnson, but his presidency got devoured by the war in vietnam. he had a terrific legislative record. this president is very careful about getting this country involved in another international crisis, war. he's overly cautious and is getting us out of afghanistan, whether that's a good or bad idea. it's coming to an end. he's very much aware of history. i think we can check the box on the personal life. i have confidence he's not going to get in trouble in his personal life. i think the legislative confrontations are the tou
for india, given that the country is running something in the range of 4% gdp deficit. the financing of that deficit needs to be on on an orderly basis, whether it's through fdi. the indian authorities are in a point where they simply have no other choice but to become more amenable towards foreign investment. and here, india stands somewhat at a contrast to the rest of the em world, if you think of countries like india or brazil or turkey, how do manage that, how to do that on an orderly basis. in contrast to that, india has been too slow and now their back is against the wall to maintain stable macro environment, they need more flows and therefore, i think the market seems to be comfortable in thinking india has no choice but to remain open for business in a big way. >> you mentioned about two minutes ago rather more foreign investment becoming more amenable to this. i think those were your words. which would be the next sectors or the next stores which would have an interest in doing this? >> there's a host of things going on right now. the authorities have a series of reform sect
the hard choices to reduce the cost of health care and the size of our deficit. but we reject the belief that america must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will build its future. (cheers and applause) >> pelley: we people, the first three words of the pre-amble of the constitution, the president repeated it again and again throughout the speech, a speech about national unity and unity of person. norah o'donnell and john dickerson are down there on the national mall. they've been watching these events unfold all day. john, the president has quite a task ahead of im. how does he proceed politically? >> well, he proceeds the next big moment is the state of the union and that's where he will get even more detailed. as bob mentioned, this did have a state of the union like feel to it as he ticked off those agenda items. but he'll get more specific about agenda items, he'll put pressure on congress and the big thing, though, is while we think about his agenda for the future, he's still dealing with the business of the past an
, immigration reform but there are leftover issues, such as the stubbornly high unemployment, a budget deficit he promised to cut in half by the end of the first term. it is a joyous day for the president but reality will kick in. real fast. chris? >> chris: ed henry reporting from the white house, ed, thanks for that. joining me now is a member of the president's inner circle. senior advisor david plouffe. and, david, welcome back to fox news sunday. >> thanks for having me, chris. >> chris: before we get to the inauguration and the president's second term i want to ask you about this terrorist attack in algeria. what is your latest information on how many americans were taken hostage, what is the status of those americans, and, what does the president think of the way the algerian military handled the situation? >> we have no additional information to report and the state department will do that. this is a reminder countries around the world share a joint threat from the terrorist organization, why we're so active about providing expertise and information and technology, to help them destroy
make the choices to reduce the cost of health care and the size of our deficit. but we reject the belief america must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will build its futur future. >> the commits we make with medicare and social security, these things do not sap our nation, they strengthen us. they do not make us a nation of takers, they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> wow, look at the crowd. this is a full bar the day after all the natural balls. i'm not sure what's going on here. that was president obama yesterday using his second natural address to preview his aggressive agenda with a focus on immigration reform, gay rights and climate control. organizers estimate as many as 1 million people filled the national mall. as the commander in chief exited the stage, he paused to savor the moment. the tradition of natural balls continued into the night. they attended 10 natural balls last night that went quite late and the first lady holding just two, the lowest since the eisenhower admi
political divisions in this country. there's vast support out there for balanced deficit reduction investments in education and manufacturing, immigration reform, gun safety. so on the issues the president intends to really push and focus on, there's massive support in the country even among republicans. let's not lose sight of that, and that's why we're going to do a better job in the second term-- while we're going to do all we can to work with congress and negotiate, to also make sure the american people are connected to what's going on here. i think to really get the kind of change here in washington the american people are going to demand it. but there is really, i think consensus around eye lot of the issues around the country >> what about the idea the republicans have said they will go along with the three-month extension on the debt ceiling increase? are you going to be-- does that help? >> well, it's helpful that they have now dropped their demand, that the only way they're going to pay the country's billes, they themselves racked up, would be to extract some concessions.
and deficit. his job legislation proposals are not being well received by republicans. the administration has not proposed any innovative resolution for the severe downturn in housing. and some believe he should have supported and promoted simpson-bowles deficit reduction proposal. he has not been able to significantly expand economic opportunity. how has obama used the tools of leadership? he attempts to communicate his vision and proposals, but he has appeared so often on television that exposure -- overexposure was agree. he's a capable public speaker, but his speech is usually lack the spirit he showed during his first campaign. he seems to lack the dramatic comedic asian skills of fdr, reagan or clinton. obama frequently comes across as a teacher, or as a motivator, not a motivator. he fails then too, frequently to excite and motivate. although he currently isn't doing bad and the current campaign. there's a reason article in a sunday edition of "the new york times" entitled obama plays to win in politics and everything else. the author paints a picture of obama that gives a still greate
be put to use, reducing our deficit or funding critical programs for working americans. on issue after issue after issue, we saw inaction. and what we heard yesterday at the start of this next two years was a call from the president for action. he said in his inaugural speech, "for now, decisions are upon us and we cannot afford delay. we cannot mistake absolutism for prince polar substitute spectacle for -- principle or substitute spectacle for politics or treat name-calling as increased debate." he continued, "we must act knowing that our work will be imperfect. we must act, knowing that today's victories will be only partial." the president echoed, if you will, the thought that he brought into his first four years, the urgency of now. that we have big issues facing america and it's time for the executive branch and the legislative branch to work together to address those issues. well, in this call for action, we must ask: how much action can there be if we see more than a hundred filibusters in the next two years? how much action can there be if on every request for a vote an object
, as we mentioned earlier, getting the deficit on a sustainable path, trying to accomplish some of his investment agenda. obviously guns are going to be a part of the agenda. right now the main thing is to kind of stick at that visionary level. >> chuck, the president had a pretty good day for his first term on friday before it even started when republicans said they would break that principle of not raising the debt limit unless they had dollar for dollar spending cuts. tell me what you think that means for the resolution of the debt limit fight, which republicans are going to put that proposal on the floor on wednesday, and the president's prospect for resolving what has looked like an excruciating fight. >> it will certainly give us a nice market backdrop which is a nice thing to start off the administration's second term. i guess add 60% gain in the dow the first three years and 10% in the second -- in the last year, but i think that really what that means is that we have a good start, but it's all designed on the republican side to try to compel the democrats to come forward with
and dignity. we must make the hard choices to reduce the cost of health care and the size of our deficit area but we reject the belief that america must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will build its future. [cheers] [applause] we remember the lessons of our past. twilight years were spent in poverty and parents of a child with a disability have nowhere to turn. we do not believe that in this country that freedom is reserved for the lucky or happiness for the few. we recognize that no matter how responsibly we live our lives, any one of us, at any time, they may face a job loss or sudden illness or a home swept away in a terrible storm. the commitments we make to each other through medicare and medicaid and social security, these things strengthen us. [cheers] [applause] they do not make us a nation of takers. they free us to take the risks that make this country great. [cheers] [applause] we, the people, still believe that our obligations as americans are not just to ourselves, but to all prosperity we will respond to the
controversial issues -- immigration, gun control, spending, dealing with the national debt and deficit. these are things he sees absolutely no common ground with republicans on. he has to get them to agree, so how is he going to do it? he's defined by his ability to campaign. he's putting that the organization into eight groups that will lobby on his behalf. his inauguration was about changing the town in washington. even people in the white house said that the president has failed to change the town. if anything, it's uglier, angrier, and even more bitter. he was to try to get just enough of the republican party on board with him to pass some of the agenda items and we believe he's going to take them all on at once. >> talk us through what we can expect on monday. >> a bit of a prayer service, but of a poetry reading, and a bit of a political pep rally all rolled into one. the president will give his speech, probably 20 minutes and take the oath of office again -- the fourth time if you think about it because the chief justice made that mistake four years ago. then there is going to b
in their 50's and 60's, people who say i'm really worried about the deficit. don't touch my medicare or social security. chris: that it? indicated stuff. >> the entitlement stuff is a really big problem. there are a lot of liberals who go too far in denying it's a problem, but it's not an immediate problem. interest rates remain low. we have a little bit of time. chris: now for some fun. we're all looking forward to witnessing the president's inauguration on monday, we thought we'd look back through history at some inauguration firsts. this inauguration will mark the 57th time a president has been sworn into office and like any national tradition, the ceremony has evolved. george washington's inauguration was not only a first for our country, but also the first and only to be rescheduled because congress delayed the election. andrew jackson was first sworn in on the east side of the capitol building and ronald reagan the first on the west. the shortest inauguration dress was george washington's second. six presidents have taken the oath outside washington. george washington first in new york,
to get the deficit down. we're going to do a budget this year and it will have revenues in it and our republican colleagues better get used to that fact. martha: promise, promises right? they will do a budget this year. we haven't seen one in how long? stuart varney the anchor of "varney & company". how many years has it been now? >> i believe it is 3 1/2 years. we go through the tax debate. we thought we got higher taxes on the rich and it was over, not so. senator schumer and fellow democrats are proposing yet higher taxes on the rich, more taxes on oil and gas companies and taxes on profits that american corporations makeover seas. so that is three big areas where taxes are going to go up. all of this we are told is going to be in the new budget which the senate has to pass in about a three-month period. so, here they come, higher taxes. martha: yeah. i mean, stuart, as you point out the argument that is being waged now about really tax rerecall follow was something that conservatives offered the first time around as a good way to sort of change the system and bring in more revenue
for the next several months with this huge fiscal problems in the united states. projections of deficits that are enormous and a clear disagreement between the president's and members of his party and the republicans in congress over what to do with it. >> let's talk about this shocking report that we have both been mentioning. the global economic downturn has hit women and girls the hardest. many households have coped with the economic pressure of the last few years by taking their children, their girls, of the school to help at home. the number of girl babies dying as a result of the downturn has risen five times faster than the proportion of playboys. child marriages are on the rise. industry experts say that many of these factors are hurting the chances of women getting a job. >> young girls, young women tend to be particularly disadvantaged in the labour markets in these times of crisis. for example in greece, two- thirds of young girls are unemployed, currently. that is compared to just 45% for young men, so there is obviously a real crisis for young women. >> that is it with the b
discurso presidencial se centro en metas de su segundo periodo, como reducir deficits y la desigualdad social y soluciones migratorias. presidente obama nuestro viaje no esta completo hasta que encontremos 1 mejor forma de darle la bienvenida a inmigrantes esforzados, con esperanza, que todavia ven a nuestro pais como tierra de oportunidades, la presencia latina se noto con richard blanco, primer poeta hispano y gay en recitar 1 poesia en la ceremonia y en la bendicion del reverendo leon. asistentes que llegaron de lejos se sintieron emocionado s. natalia olson-urtecho, visitante de philadelphiasi basa gente hablando y platicando en espanol. y el poema se refirio a la comunidad hispana." monica montano, visitante de san diego es algo muy increible la verdad, es 1 evento enorme. hay tanto orgullo." otros dicen haber sentido la misma emocion de hace 4 anos. pedro carrillo, ex-miembro de campana de obama seguro que si, mucho orgullo en este dia, estamos esperando mucho de este presidente pero lo vamos a apoyar. isaac faz, asistente a ceremonia igual de emocion, igual de energia y listo pa
, mentioning some of the issues he wants to tackle. gun control, deficit reduction. as you said, waiting on the big details until the state of the union address. neil: you mentioned finding common ground. we may have gotten a hint on that when republicans said they would look at eight debt ceiling it ascension back ago, probably, three months. what do you make of that? don: they would be blamed, roundly, thoroughly if the country went into some kind of default. the strategy, as you have been reporting, has been to try to take this issue off the table and then fight the battle over spending cuts when you have a sequestration cuts scheduled to start march 1. the current resolution running the government also running out into her three months from now. as well as, the debt ceiling having to be raised yet again. republicans hope this is when they will be able to get the leverage to push spending cuts and entitlement reform. neil: you know, peter, what we look at -- how does that decide? there is a protocol. sitting in and around that i see ron emanuel sitting close to president clinton, how
the challenges of the deficit and the debt, and also to get a budget. we haven't had had a budget in a long time. i hope he will step up to responsibilities to be a president that is inclusive rather than exclusive and focus on the word, we can do it together. >> eric: this morning, on fox sunday, it's common ground and grand themes, but look -- and compromise. his campaign organizing for america they changed that organizing for action. he will be pushing his policies. how does that square with the theme of common ground? >> i think it's a little inconsistent. president should be listening to people who won election during the last cycle. there were a lot of republicans that won pretty solid elections and now serving. i want to make sure the president is inclusive with the word we, and he has to try to find common ground with them rather than stand with home common ground. >> eric: how about dealing with the debt ceiling and mr. boehner he won't negotiate anymore? >> the president is going to have to reach across the aisle and demonstrate sincerely he will listen and work. he has to show up for
programs at a time when everyone in washington is talking about debt and deficits, he threw down the gauntlet and made clear, i won the election, i will stand for these following things. he did not go in great detail. he does that next month. he made clear he is coming out where he is and he will come out swinging and he thinks he will get a lot done. we will see. >>neil: before i leave, much was made that the president has not walked much so far, what do you make of that? compared to last inaugural. >>reporter: he will be making that town as you say at the treasury department in a block or so from where we are right now, at lafayette park. look, they are always careful about not having the president walk too far. based on the cheers he is getting close because people here, outside the white house, they have been waiting if hours, since early this morning, 7:00 or 8:00 a.m. lining up here, so you get the idea after 4:00 p.m. eastern time, folks are cold, folks are tired, they are very excited to see the newly inaugurated president, re-elected president coming out here. as i menti
, but a defense of the reunconstructed entitlement state. there was a line to care for the deficit, but immediately said there's no choice between to make between investing in the elderly and younger generation saying we're not going to make choices at all, but keep spending. gerri: where was the conversation about, you know, trying to tackle our national debt? >> well, i mean, i just want to address one thing rich said. president obama spent the last four years trying to work with the republicans that failed, and i think in the first -- gerri: all right, but answer the question here. this is an issue we talk about every single day on this program. there's $16 trillion in federal debt, $50,000 for each and every american in the country to have to pay, and the president doesn't even mention it in the speech. why? >> this there was a mention of , but more detail in the state of the union. look at the speeches separately. today was broad, and putting out the fact he's going after the promises made in the next four years. the state of the union, on february 1 #* 12th, there's a deal ab
deficits, america cannot afford another debate with this congress about whether or not they should pay the bills they've already racked up. >> bill: so the question -- so why should the president entertain this notion that the debt ceiling which republicans voted for 19 times under george w. bush without a peep, you know, why should he entertain the notion that suddenly this is a matter of big negotiations? >> well, he's trying to say that he shouldn't but unfortunately the house republicans have the majority in congress. unfortunately for him, so when he says he doesn't want to debate it and negotiate over it, he is running up against the fact that people who have the power in the house do want to debate it and that can cause problems. he certainly is pushing this idea here to try to remove this from the realm of what he wants and the american people see as rational debate. he used a lot of words yesterday that were very strong to try to make people see this as what he called an absurd way of approaching this. he talked about this being like holding a gun to your head or ransom. this
, is look it would add to the deficit whether you were north of south, it doesn't matter. we have only paid for a small amount in terms of offsets for any of these storms. from 2003 to now, in 2003 we had a rule under different circumstances, we had to find some money or find the revenue to pay for it. >> stephanie: right. >> but this is an emergency. we are 80 days into this now. you know how many homes have been damaged and destroyed? i think it's like close to 350,000 homes. >> stephanie: yeah. >> the power outages in new jersey, two -- over 2.5 million no power. i mean i go down the whole list. >> stephanie: right. and it's winter back east encase encase -- in case people haven't noticed. it used to be we are just americans. but look at yesterday, look at yesterday, when there was a tragedy, we used to try to figure out how we come to the table. literally there are people accusing the president of being like saadam hussein, and using children as human shields. >> yeah, they will stop at nothing. we have more ideologues now in the congress than we had in the 112
immigration reform, reducing the deficit in a balanced way. the american people voted for both parties to work together on those issues. that's certainly something the president is seeking to do. >> so, ben, i'm curious, preparations for monday, are they all done at this point and when do you start planning for this? i'm guessing you have to do it even before the election is done, right? >> that's true, there are many officials, particularly at those security officials and congressional officials who put the events on the mall together, prepare the security, the logistics, they've been working for over a year, regardless of who's going to be the next president. in terms of this committee that's put together the program, that's taken a couple of months to put together. it's not all done yet, we're pretty much ready to go. but two more days of work and we'll be there. >> i'm sure it will all be ready to go by monday. ben, i have to ask you. what is going on behind you and good on you for still talking over that? >> well, i think you can hear the performers appealing to all demographics. this one
to overload the agenda but in addition everything he wants to do and obviously the debt and deficit he will have several battles with congress over that but gun control, he will try to take advantage newtown has happened and perhaps caused a tippingpoint in public attitudes and he will push that very aggressively. shepard: senator chuck schumer, the chairman of joint congressional committee of presidential ceremonies with opening remarks. >> welcome to the capitol and this celebration of our great democracy. now this -- [cheers and applause] this is the 57th inauguration of an american president and no matter how many times one witnesses this event, its simplicity, its inate majesty and most of all its meaning, that say yesterday, yet cautious trusting of power from wee we the people to our chosen leader never fails to make our heart beat faster as it will today with the inauguration of president barack h. obama!. [applause] now we know that we would not be here today were it not for those who stand guard around the world to preserve our freedom. to those in our armed forces, we offer
